Festival of Arabic Music and Arts: Maghrebian Night


Festival of Arabic Music and Arts: Maghrebian Night

Date: Fri, Nov 08, 2019 07:30PM
Price: $50 orchestra, $45 balcony, 10% off for Friends, students, and seniors

The Canadian Arabic Orchestra brings you an evening of classical music that evokes the sand dunes of North Africa, its majestic mountains, azure sea, and bustling sun-kissed cities. Celebrating the music of North Africa’s Maghreb region, you will hear sounds from Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco — sounds that carry the smell of the sea and the warmth of the sun.


This concert is part of the annual Festival of Arabic Music and Arts, as well as the Museum’s 2019/20 season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performative arts in connecting communities, preserving culture, and spurring social change.


Don’t forget that a ticket to any of our Performing Arts events grants you access to our galleries on the day of the show, so you can enjoy our Museum Collection and our special exhibitions, including Caravans of Gold, Fragments of Time.



The Canadian Arabic Orchestra is a non-profit organization based in Mississauga, dedicated to connecting audiences with classical Arabic music, while celebrating the freedom and diversity of Canada’s cultural landscape. The repertoire covers all parts of the Arab world and spans a period that goes back to early Andalusia – sometimes with a Western Classical and Jazz twist. We help Canadians get in touch with the cultural roots of Arabic music.
